Adventis Financial Modeling Certification Program

Are you interested in pursuing a position in investment banking, private equity, equity research, or other competitive fields in finance?

The Careers in Business and Finance program has partnered with Adventis to provide practical modeling experience through is proven Financial Modeling Certification (FMC) Program. This intensive, 2-day boot camp provides hands-on financial modeling training. Adventis’ unique training style consists of having students build financial models and analyses entirely from scratch, while explaining key concepts along the way. This approach enables students to retain more concepts and develop a valuable skill set.

Certified students have been able to demonstrate to employers that they have strong analytical capabilities and are ready to hit the ground running, impressing interviewers and ultimately landing positions at top firms on Wall Street. For those looking to excel quickly in their full-time or internship position or for sophomores looking to demonstrate abilities to potential employers, this program will reduce your learning curve and put you on a more even playing field with finance majors with whom you will be working or interning.

The training will be held from 9 a.m.–5 p.m. on Saturday, February 23 and Sunday, February 24, with a 1-hour lunch break each day, in Webster 102. The course requires a PC (no Macs), and space will be limited to the first 22 students (based on the number of PCs available in Webster 102), plus up to an additional 10 students who can provide their own PC laptop. Certification exams will be held approximately every other week after the boot camp.
